STAFF WRITER

Howdy! I'm Lexi, a photographer, graphic designer, and writer. After my husband and I restored our 1919 home in Baltimore, I developed a love of all things architectural.

As a huge nerd for post-processing and elaborate detail work, I've found great joy in the labors of love that photographing architecture demands. In my former travels around the globe as an ad agency photographer, I've fallen even further in love with the various structures and niches that AP has to offer!

“The Value of Architectural Photography” With Rob Van Esch

A few years ago, seasoned Amsterdam-based architectural photographer Rob Van Esch released a captivating eBook “Staying On Top of Current Architectural Photography Trends” which focused on the recent shifts in the way architecture is photographed.

Rob has written another thought-provoking book that we’re excited to share, “The Value of Architectural Photography, and How to Increase It.”

Join The Crew: APALMANAC is Hiring

Shew! Can you believe the second birthday of APALMANAC’s first published article is coming up? Call us nostalgic but we’ve been reflecting on our growth — not just as a website, but as a community. It seems as if the shroud surrounding the tiny niche of architectural and interiors photography has been drawn back, revealing an incredible network of people who are eager to share advice, workflows, pricing, and business strategy — and we are so proud to play a little part in helping expand that community.

Architectural Photography Studio Tarry & Perry are the First to Document the Completed ‘Concrete House’ as Featured on Grand Designs

Step inside this perfect concrete monolith with us today for Project of the Week before it is revisited on Grand Designs this February. If it feels familiar to you, you probably spotted the unfinished home on the show in 2018. This brute is back, finished up, and photographed for the first time since its completion by the incredible architectural photography studio Tarry and Perry.

Get A Grip With Dennis Radermacher’s 3D Printed Canon TS-E Knobby

3D Printing is a beautiful thing. It gives those with the tools and the patience the superpowers to engineer a custom solution to design problems. That’s the case of New Zealand based architectural photographer Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography.

Frustrated by the small shift knobs on the Canon TS-E lenses — especially when working in the heat or cold — plus the fact that Dennis couples his lenses with the Rogeti TS-E frame (making the knob access even more cumbersome) Dennis taught himself how to 3D print an ergonomic knob extension that is beefier and more accessible than Canon’s.

Andy Macpherson Walks Us Through Photographing The Magnificent Prospect Terrace In Brisbane

I can’t think of a better way to kick off a new year of Project of the Weeks than with our friend, the great Andy Macpherson. Today, we’re traveling to sunny Brisbane, Australia to check out Andy’s photographs of Prospect Terrace. Prospect Terrace is a gorgeous project worked on by architect The Artificial, developer Zephyr Industries, and landscape architect LARC Collective.

From Her First Commission To Personal Project, Kim Smith Speaks on the Journey of Photographing “House In The Woods”

With the blanket of snow, color palette, and the soft warm glow emanating out of Architectural Resources’s House In The Woods, I had originally thought that my new friend Kim Smith’s photographs would make a particularly cozy and holiday-ish Project of the Week. But actually, as she told me about this shoot and sent the entirety of the project over, it became so much more than that.

Ukrainian Photographer Andriy Bezuglov Photographs Kyiv’s Spicy NoSpicy

From my time spent pouring over various architecture and architecture photography throughout the world (wide web), I’ve noticed that Ukraine has some of the most interesting, rich with mood, and just downright cool projects, especially in the restaurant sector.

One of my new personal favorite Ukraninan photographers is Andriy Bezuglov, who has shared this beautiful project with us.

“Patient, Observant, and Ever Ready,” Bien Alvarez Photographs The Viewpoint House In The Philippines

Today’s featured project takes us to Quezon City, Philippines where we’ll be checking out a home named Viewpoint House, designed by Jim Caumeron Design. This contemporary beauty was documented by Manila, Philippines based architectural photographer Bien Alvarez. I think you’ll agree that Bien’s photographs highlight the shapely design of this home while showing off the intricacies found within this space.

Photographer Sam Hartnett Brings Mood And Drama To A Project In Waiheke Island

This week’s featured project is a beauty out of New Zealand by photographer Sam Hartnett. Sam specializes in architecture photography and art documentation, and you’ll notice quickly that he crafts gorgeously composed images that have dramatic and directional light. He is a master of portraying the mood of the homes he photographs, and this project — Cowes Bay House — by Cheshire Architects’ on Waiheke Island is no exception.
